The program for mobility-impaired skiers was ..., 26 April 2006 [cached]
The program for mobility-impaired skiers was almost dead, but a first-time participant, Jeff Pagels, decided it was worth continuing. Jeff had been a high-competition athlete and had only recently been injured. He found SFL to be his way to ski and compete again. He subsequently became one of the premier sit skiers in world competition. Through his enthusiasm and creativity the SFL sit ski program was reborn.
Sculptor Bill Osmundsen worked during the week in the lobby of the Sheraton Four Points Hotel creating a clay model of his new motif "Sit Skier" which was developed with Jeff Pagels who provided his expertise on the sit ski.
Despite the two bad years at Telemark, and with the encouragement from Jeff Pagels, SFL decided to take a chance on northern Wisconsin again.
Beginning sometime in the early 90's, Jeff Pagels secured major support from JanSport.

For MIPs, it's Jeff Pagels at
No, this is not the first mountain Jeff has summited, but this climb marks the end of a ten-year quest for the top of this mountain. Mt. Bross stands 14,173 feet high, and is located some twenty miles south of Breckenridge, Colorado.
Jeff first attempted this mountain back in July of 1995, accompanied by, among others, newly-weds, Scott and Brenda bertrand, who postponed their honeymoon to join him. After about 3 yards up the mountain, Pagels got a rude awakening; namely, that he couldn't make it up these mountains in his sports chair without serious help from his friends. Despite some amazing teamwork, the summit eluded the group, as it did once again, on a second attempt in 2004.
But late this summer, with better equipment, more time, and Jeff's continued determination (not to mention a willingness to take a battering in the effort), Jeff made it to the top under his own power.
After a surprise bottle of champagne lugged up by one of his teammates, followed by a grueling descent on a hand cycle mountain climber with no shocks, Pagels declared himself ready for the next adventure, whatever that might be.
Congratulations, Jeff; keep up the good work and the adventurous spirit!
